Alternative fuels

With energy costs rising, reduced availability of typical fossil fuels and ever stricter regulations on environmental limits, alternative fuel co-processing has become a necessity for cement plant operators

Dosing up to 100m3 of alternative fuels per hour

AF receiving and dosing unit

A simple transition to alternative fuels

The AF receiving and dosing unit is a simple and cost-effective way to demonstrate the effectiveness of alternative fuels at your plant before making the transition to a more permanent solution.

Fully portable and with its own local control system, the AF receiving and dosing unit includes everything you need to set up quickly. It enables you to test both the AF supply chain and a wide variety of AF types in order to ascertain the optimum mix for your plant, and ensure you maximise your return on investment in AF right from the start. 

Key benefits

  • Dosing up to 100m3 of AF per hour
  • Fast delivery time and installation
  • Local control system reduces need for wiring at installation
  • Works with a range of fuel types, including:
    - Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF)
    - Process Engineered Fuel (PEF)
    - Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)
    - Biomass (e.g. wood waste, rice husks)
    - Tire chips (without metal)

A step-wise approach

We’re using a step-wise approach that works well to establish what is possible and quickly help plants obtain measurable benefits. Whatever approach is chosen, everything is developed in close collaboration with the plants’ own team – helping to identify the limits for AF utilisation and to find out where the bottlenecks are.
